How is it possible?

Since my last post, my baby boy has turned 1. All last week, I just kept thinking, "this time last year, I couldn't wait for you to get here. This time last year, I was going to the doctor to learn that I would be induced. This time last year, I was bringing you home for the first time." Seriously, it has been the best year, and I wouldn't change a minute of it. I love seeing that bright, smiling face in the morning, and seeing his eyes light up at the sound of his sister laughing. I love the boy-ness of him, his curiosity, the fact that he is constantly on the go. And I love seeing that little personality emerge more and more every day. I always worried that there would be no way I could love a second baby as much as I love my first, but those worries have proven silly, and I have learned that I have more than enough love to go around.

So, Happy Birthday, sweet boy. I love you.

    All runners have bad days, we chalk them up and push forward to our next run..I just read somewhere less then 10% of the world is runners so consider yourself among the "elite" at least that's what I like to do even though I am a hunky chunky running Mom!!! haha Good luck on Saturday I am sure it will be great!
